There's No Room In The Garden


I have ten acres of land and a pair of ant hills

What I need is a unique experience

An experience that doesn't feel like I just got done having it



I need room in the garden

For boll weevils and piranha

For life

I'm a satellite

And I'm old

And it's fall



There's no room in my garden

I have roses

cat turds

even the comatose body

of James Joyce!



I need help

I cultivate my garden

I put in long hours

I long for more room

But there's no room in the garden

If I pulled out the roses

I'd feel sad

I need help

I need God to come down and pull out all of my teeth!
